Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing exciting Sheffield United forward Daniel Jebbison in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Jebbison breaks record
The Blades may have had a season to forget last time around, suffering relegation from the Premier League, but Jebbison produced a moment to treasure.
The 18-year-old became the youngest-ever player to score on his full debut in the competition – he was 17 years and 309 days old at the time – bagging the only goal in a 1-0 win at Everton.
The Latest: Leeds linked with move
According to TEAMtalk, Leeds are eyeing up a move for the forward this summer, with the report claiming they ‘have an interest’ in him.
Aston Villa and Brentford are also mentioned as potential suitors, with Jebbison making five appearances for the Blades to date.
The Verdict: One for the future
The Canadian looks a hot prospect with a bright career ahead of him, so it would be exciting to see him trade Bramall Lane for Elland Road.
He has been hailed as ‘fantastic’ by Micah Richards in the past and could perhaps be viewed as a long-term replacement for Patrick Bamford.
Jebbison likely wouldn’t be considered an immediate first-team option if he did join Leeds, but it is important that Marcelo Bielsa looks towards the future, as well as the present, with the Whites having already made additions to their youth set-up this summer.
In other news, Phil Hay has claimed that one player will join Leeds this summer. Find out who it is here.
